Thy Nativity O Christ our God
Children usually want to know all about their birth. It is very important to know how you came into the world, who was there to greet you and were you cared for and loved. Most of us are born in a nearby hospital, and of course, mother is there to greet us and daddy, in most cases that I know of.
This year, my husband bought me a very nice gift, that I will treasure for many years to come. It is a new nativity scene, having only three pieces. We know that story encompasses so much more. The church gives us a wonderful account of Christ's birth, in it's Troparion. "Your Nativity, O Christ our God, has shone to the world the light of wisdom! For by it, those who worshipped the stars, were taught by a star to adore You, the Sun of righteousness, and to know You, the Orient from on high. O Lord, Glory to You!"
Everyone knows the story of the three kings, the angels and shepherds, the star and the wonder of it all....God hidden in a cave. The story is about a journey for all. Mary and Joseph, the three kings, the star that led them to the place, and us. God makes known to us the light of wisdom so that we not only will follow Him but come and Worship Him, giving Him the gift of our self.
The light of His coming is the only Hope in a darkened world. He "is" the Light of the World...Glory be to Thee, O Lord, Glory be to Thee.
I have received a wonderful gift and I am very thankful to have received it.Has your journey led you to that special place where you have found Him and have come to worship Him? There is no greater love.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
